After Nick Clegg's surprise defection to Libya, where he has now been made Foreign Minister, rumours are spreading of more possible defects among the LibDems.
Unfortunately nobody knows who these LibDems are but political commentators are busy trying to find out something about them.
'These LibDems are all defects to me' was one sweeping comment from Tory Back Bencher Sir Algernon Carstairs-Brown 'let's get some by elections going so we can replace these defaecating LibDems. Then we can get a bit of backbone into the Government so that real cuts can be made that will eat into the flesh of the rising proleteriat!'
Meanwhile in Libya Colonel Gaddafi, now promoted to become Libya's Admiral of the Fleet and Chief of the Air Force, hopes the defections will take the world's attention away from the total failure of his counter attack against the rebels in his country.
